Mentz Surname Orgins and References

Commentators on German history have researched and suggest that Men(t)z is low german or a shorter/pet name for Meinhard (t) or Meinrich. *note: there are a limited number of Mentz/Menz family members whose names were transformed to the name Mintz after immigration in the 1800s. Although this is rare, there are proven cases available on familyresearch.org
